Publication of the 1st issue in 2018


The first issue of Cancer Biology & Medicine in 2018 has been published. The solicited editorial which was written by Prof. Melvin L.K. Chua and his colleagues focuses on the evolution of Epstein - Barr virus detection in nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Two reviews summarized the literatures on breast cancer during pregnancy, and application of dual-specificity phosphatase 6 in cancer research. Besides, some latest research results are displayed including PARKIN protein, calcium channel α2δ1 subunit, syndecan-binding protein, HS-10182 (an EGFR-TKI), some novel measurements and methods in cancer prognosis, as well as a new surgical technique for pancreatoduodenectomy. We hope all of these articles will greatly benefit you on your research and clinical practice, and warmly welcome you to submit studies to Cancer Biology & Medicine.
